Christian Horner: Why would Webber want to leave Red Bull?

Published

Red Bull team Principal Christian Horner has minimized the latest reports of the Monaco winner Mark Webber; he could be off to Ferrari 2012, Horner questioning why he would want to leave Red Bull.

The media reports unformed Felipe Massa will replace – a driver short for next year’s Championship. Go into Mark Webber.

“It is not known whether the Vettel option is binding on either side, but if there is a one-year Ferrari vacancy for 2013, it strengthens the case for Webber being the man to fill it,” claimed The Sunday Times.

“Why would he want to leave? I think he is a comfortable in the team,” Horner told Autosport.

“The team knows Mark very well and Mark knows the team very well. We are only at race six, and obviously a lot depends on his desire and motivation which, at the moment, looks very clear.

“He is doing a great job and we are really happy with him, and he really deserved this result.”

Christian Horner is also added Webber’s victory in Monaco on Sunday, which was his second achievement in three years.

“Mark has had a great day in Monaco. He is driving really well,” he said. He is in great shape and you can see on a day like this that he is absolutely on top of his game.

“We have a very open and straightforward relationship with Mark and (the Monaco win) certainly does not change that.

“It is the same situation that we have had the last couple of years. Let’s focus on now and the future will take care of itself.”
